    Most Convenient Blood Pressure Monitor Out There

    I really like being able to track my blood pressure using this device. I like that the cool down rate between automatic readings is quicker than Nokia's regular Blood Pressure Monitor. I think as a tool, the device accomplishes it's job and that's all I ask. Set up process is still not perfect. Would really like to be able to track blood pressure without using a phone and simply checking the readings later. Those are minor notes. Overall, its worth it if you need something portable and fast.

    You are giving all your data to Nokia

    Be aware that the app you are forced to use transmits all of your data to Nokia's servers and you can not even use the BPM+ unless you agree to Nokia keeping your data. Sorry to say companies and governments have routinely demonstrated that they can't be trusted with this kind of responsibility. We should be able to keep our data on our phones so then we are responsible for protecting it.

    Useless -- Should be recalled and taken off the market

    I struggled with this thing for months. Nokia tech support had me reset it, measure my arm, and did everything else they could to deflect blame from this inaccurate and unusable device. They even questioned the competence of my doctor!

    Bottom line: This BPM is more than 10% off from any other BPM I have ever seen, including my doctor, my cardiologist, other doctors, and even Walmart and an old blood forearm blood pressure cuff that I have. This kind of inaccuracy is intolerable, potentially leading to life-threatening misdiagnoses. The product should be recalled immediately and taken off the market.

    Almost Perfect

    It is really well built and design is modern which is what I was after. I mean, if I need to use one of these regularly, it has to look good. First thing I did was compare it with my old one several times and reading were spot on every single time and in line with my historical readings.

    While operating it is very quiet which is something else I needed because there are times when I need to use this at work or when someone is asleep next to me at home. It does not emit annoying beeps like my old one. App will force you to create an account which is completely unnecessary and you can't use this device directly with Health app.

    Rated it 4 stars because of really high price, app forcing account creation and bluetooth connectivity is not the greatest.

    The product stopped working properly after a month, and the App is bad.

    This blood pressure monitor is compact in size and great for travel. However it perform really bad in few areas:
    1. Doesn't work well with multiple phones. If you're sharing this with families then it's terribly troublesome to manually connect to bluetooth of different phones

    2. After a month of use, the monitor stopped working properly. It constantly stop working in the middle of the measurement, 9 out of 10 times. Very very hard to take measures.

    3. The App is bad. It keep asking me to take a survey, but I ALREADY submitted the survey 3 times, and it keep asking. very annoying

    4. I couldn't easily find any resource for taking my device for repair. i have to send email and ask, which is pretty bad customer support

    If you have a low BP and want it to look higher.... then buy

    I like the app, how it displays on the iphone, how it integrates with the health app, but unfortunately this product is disappointingly inaccurate. Being conscious of my health and fitness, I thought this product would be a great avenue to monitor my BP in a non medical environment. I bought this BP cuff right after having a medical check-up, thinking that daily, tracked readings would be a truer indication than once in a while at the doctor's office. At the doctor's office my BP reading was lower than I expected, however, when I first opened the package and gave it a try I was surprised at the unusually high reading. I didn't think much about it since BP does fluctuate, and maybe I was just excited about my new toy... wrong... the high readings continued over the next couple of days... also, if I took a second reading a minute or 2 after the first, it would read 5-10mm systolic lower, which made me really question it's accuracy. I work in the Fire/EMS field and decided to to do a test at work. We compared the BPM+ with the regular manual (sphygmomanometer) BP cuffs and it consistently read 20-30mm systolic, and 5-10mm diastolic higher. Returning the product.

    Not at all accurate

    I have several blood pressure monitors. I have earlier versions of the Withings BPM monitors and an OMRON device. I measured my blood pressure 3 times with this new Nokia model. The readings varied by over 10 points on diastolic and systolic readings in the three measurements. I did the same test with an OMRON device and got readings that were all within 3 points of each other. Further, the OMRON readings were significantly lower than the Nokia device. Based on other reviews, it seems the Nokia has a serious accuracy and calibration problem. I am taking my device back to Apple.

    Absolutly DO NOT BUY!!!!!

    Purchased 30 days ago. After a week of checking my blood pressure everyday it jumped up to Crisis readings. I felt absolutely fine but made an appointment with my doctor anyway. When they checked my pressure it was fine. They double checked it still fine. I showed the doctor my Nokia BP cuff and we ran it. We did the reading 3 times. All were between 40 and 60 points off.

    Of course, this all was beyond the 14 day period for returns. Apple will not stand by products they sell, so I am stuck with a completely useless product. Add the cost of the Doctor's visit on top of it and it really should give me high blood pressure.

    I really should have listened to reviews over the temptation to buy

    Bottom line: Readings are 100% in-accurate. I'm not talking like off marginally, ... I'm talking it labeled me as a RISK 2 HIGH BP immediately after checking my BP both the old fashioned way (120/80) and using Withings BP cuff (the original generation of this evolved version which was prior to Nokia's acquisition). Even the Withings older model was accurate! This one, not at ALL! Returning,...

    Readings Are Not Accurate

    I've had this for a few months now and the readings are surprisingly inaccurate. I brought it to have my doctor check the accuracy.To compare he checked my blood pressure manually as well as with a Omron automatic cuff. The Nokia's systolic number was on average 22 points high and the diastolic was on average 8 points higher.
